Whether you’re on an Around the World trip, a Summer Holiday, a City Break or a Weekend away here’s Kilkenny Tourist Hostel’s Top 5 Reasons to Stay at a Hostel:
1. Meeting New People
If you want to meet new people from all over the world, find out a little bit about different cultures and make new friends then a Hostel is where it’s at. You’ll find it easy to chat to people in the kitchen while you’re cooking your dinner or introduce yourself to fellow travellers while relaxing in your dorm room. The social aspect of staying in a Hostel is not to be underestimated..no more lonely, boring days alone in a hotel room.. instead mingle in a Hostel’s common room and you’ll hook up with people to explore the city with plus have a few drinks and loads of laughs later in the evening. There are all sorts of people from every walk of life staying in Hostels..young, not so young, students, professionals, backpackers, families, groups of friends, solo travellers and married couples. Everyone is welcome at Kilkenny Tourist Hostel!
Get more bang for your buck by staying at a Hostel and make your budget stretch. You can travel slower and longer and see more by spending less on accommodation. This doesn’t mean you’ll forgo comfort or service though and the added bonus is you’ll be able to stay away for weeks or months instead of days and have more money to spend on more trips in the future. It’s a win win don’t you think? Prices at Kilkenny Tourist Hostel start at only 14 Euro a night!
There’s a certain charm about Hostels that you just don’t get in lots of other generic, soulless and impersonal accommodation alternatives. You can always be sure of a buzz and loads of banter in a Hostel, with people milling around, chatting, swapping stories and getting to know one another. Of course the other brilliant thing about Hostels is that the staff know the city or area inside out and back to front and are always willing and eager to tell guests about the best things to do and the coolest places to go. These insider tips and hidden gems mean guests experience the surroundings like a local and really get a feel for a place.
